Improve Your Digestion With These 3 Simple Tips

Improve Your Digestion With These 3 Simple Tips

  Welcome to Whole Woman Wednesday! Today’s topic is improving your digestion. In Chinese medicine, digestion is the main indicator that determines the state of your overall health. Many times, improving your health (or fertility, or immune system, or mood) starts with improving your digestion. A healthy digestion means that you don’t get gas, bloating, heartburn or feel sluggish after a meal, but rather feel energized and satiated. It also means having 2-3 well-formed bowel movements per day. When you’re digestive fires are burning at the optimal level, meaning your digestion is strong, you don’t experience strong cravings that aren’t good for you, like sweets, and greasy fried foods, and you are able to easily maintain a healthy weight. From a mental/emotional standpoint, a weak digestion in Chinese medicine means that you tend to worry, obsess, or overthink, and find it difficult to get moving, either physically or metaphorically. If any of this sounds familiar, today’s episode is for you! Click play above to learn my three favorite Chinese medicine tricks you can...

How To Energetically Protect Yourself As A Highly Sensitive Woman

How To Energetically Protect Yourself As A Highly Sensitive Woman

  I believe highly sensitive, empathetic women are healers. Whether or not you’re in the healing profession, if you’re this type of woman, you tend to assimilate the energy of the people you love and come into contact with in effort to take away their pain. It’s what we do best. While being highly sensitive and empathetic have enormous benefits, it’s imperative that we learn the art of self-protection. With the internet and social media, the amount of people we are in contact with day-to-day has grown exponentially. Side note:  You don’t have to be in someone’s physical presence to feel the effects of their energy, as I’m sure you have already experienced to be true. When I was in acupuncture school treating patients in the student clinic, I would see a patient and later complain of the exact symptoms I was treating earlier that would seemingly come out of nowhere. Interestingly, my patients would report they felt better immediately after our session. This became a pattern I would notice frequently throughout my schooling and into my first...

5 Weight Loss Mistakes Every Woman Makes

5 Weight Loss Mistakes Every Woman Makes

  Weight loss is not about deprivation or discipline; it’s about giving your body proper nutrients so that you are finally able to ditch bad-for-you cravings, make healthy food choices and release weight.  As an acupuncturist that specializes in women’s health and nutrition, I’ve coached hundreds of women from all over the world through my online weight loss programs since 2010. And, speaking from experience, I have easily released 40 lbs that I gained with my second pregnancy using the same techniques I teach. I’ve watched women get life-changing results from making a few important but crucial tweaks in their diet, and you can, too. Here are the five most common weight loss mistakes I’ve seen women make:    Counting calories — All calories are not created equal. Different foods elicit different insulin responses, i.e. fat storage response in the body. Think about how 300 calories of cake would make you feel versus 300 calories of veggies. Rather than counting calories, it’s far more important to eat a combination of a good carbohydrate, protein and healthy fat...

How To Accomplish Your Goals Without Losing Steam (Or Self-Esteem)

How To Accomplish Your Goals Without Losing Steam (Or Self-Esteem)

  A real inspiration killer is trying to work toward a goal when you needed that goal to happen yesterday. Or 5 years ago. Whether it be a financial goal, a health goal, or a life goal, if the “getting there” doesn’t feel good, or if you feel desperate for it to happen, you will block any flow of divine creativity, love or abundance, which would help you reach your goal. Let’s face it, setting goals can be stressful. It sounds like a good idea at first, but as time goes by and you’re working your tail off and your progress is not what you expected, or the timeframe changes, or the path doesn’t look anything like what you envisioned, you can start to question yourself. With New Year’s just two weeks away, I think it’s important to address this popular topic of goal-setting, and offer some new insights that will make setting and reaching for your goals a more rewarding and empowering experience.   Try these simple, yet...
